Wow. Altman (and I have no idea who the hell he is), the coach of Creighton (who? where?) turns down the Razorbacks basketball job. It is no secret that I am not a Hogs fan, and I just know that somewhere my dad is having a good chuckle over this one:
Altman was believed to be at least the Razorbacks’ sixth target. Arkansas officials reportedly offered the job to Texas A&M’s Billy Gillespie, Kansas’ Bill Self, Southern California’s Tim Floyd, Memphis’ John Calipari and Marquette’s Tom Crean, who each turned the job down.
As a card-carrying SEC fanboy, I still find this pretty funny.
